As The Moon Ascends

The steady click

of the clock’s pendulum

keeps time with

the beat of my heart.

The furnace whispers warmth

as the dog, freshly bathed,

tries to lick himself dry.

From the other room

the bed silently suggests,

“Surrender the day,

Embrace the night”

as I slowly shuffle

off to sleep.
